Dr. Claudia Beeny, founder and executive director of House of Shine: “Our exhibit will examine the lives of nine people and visually illustrate how experiences are like points in a connect-the-dot picture. When we follow fulfilling paths, our dots connect in such a way that the picture revealed is of a life well-lived.”

“We will look back as far as 10 or 12 years-old, asking questions such as: What kind of student were you? How did you spend your time? Did talents and interests you possessed as a young person influence or impact your career path? Which life experiences (good and bad) have proven to be most influential? If you could deliver a message to your 12-year-old self, what would it be?”

The exhibit features:

  • Thear Sy Suzuki, EY Business Executive/SMU graduate (and is featured in President George W. Bush’s latest collection of oil paintings and stories, Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants)
  • Lewis Johnson, sportscaster
  • Traci Bernard, healthcare administrator
  • Samuel Barsoum, animator/game developer
  • Brady Clayton, film production
  • Dr. Magdalena Battles, psychologist/author
  • Leslie Mitchel, Army colonel/entrepreneur
  • Brad Uptmore, police officer/social media influencer
  • Gabrielle Madison, corporate social impact executive
